Auto industry executive: Statistics show that cars that were built smaller after 1977 to make them more fuel-efficient had a higher incidence of accident-related fatalities than did their earlier larger counterparts. For this reason we oppose recent guidelines that would require us to produce cars with higher fuel efficiency.

Which of the following, if true, would constitute the strongest objection to the executive’s argument?

(A) Even after 1977, large automobiles were frequently involved in accidents that caused death or serious injury.
(B) Although fatalities in accidents involving small cars have increased since 1977, the number of accidents has decreased.
(C) New computerized fuel systems can enable large cars to meet fuel efficiency standards established by the recent guidelines.
(D) Modern technology can make small cars more fuel-efficient today than at any other time in their production history.
(E) Fuel efficiency in models of large cars rose immediately after 1977 but has been declining ever since.

y A is wrong??

C

Objection should counter this "we oppose recent guidelines that would require us to produce cars with higher fuel efficiency"

The executive's seems to say that only smaller cars can be made fuel efficient. C counters this claim saying that large cars can also be made fuel-efficient and hence is the strongest objection.

C is the best choice. The executive's reasoning was that if the guideline was imposed, then they had to make smaller cars which are more likely to be involved in an accident. However, if there are new technologies that allow large cars to be fuel efficient, then the executive's concern is unwarranted.

Regarding your question why A is wrong, it's simply because it does not address any concerns that the executive might have.

C is the best answer.

One more vote for C coz it states an possibility that auto industry could produce large cars consuming fuel as little as small cars, therefore, their safety concerns about small cars about will be eliminated.
